Florida and Utah first states to select TourHealth for coronavirus testing solutions
OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leveraging 80 years of combined experience, NIC, Impact Health and Next Marketing have partnered on a new rapid and secure COVID-19 testing program, TourHealth Solutions.
Featuring online engagement, assessment and scheduling, as well as in-person clinical testing and logistics, TourHealth is a comprehensive and scalable COVID-19 testing solution that offers rapid results.
The TourHealth partnership has been awarded a contract by the State of Florida to provide two semi-permanent testing sites in City of Miami and Miami Beach. At each site, TourHealth will be able to process up to 625 tests per day for a total of 1,250 tests daily.
“With cases of coronavirus on the rise in many states across the country, we are pleased to do our part in helping fight this pandemic,” said Harry Herington, NIC CEO and Chairman of the Board. “TourHealth is directly aligned with NIC’s mission of making government, in this case vital COVID-19 testing, more accessible 24 hours a day for people across the country.”
In Utah, the TourHealth partnership was selected as one of two vendors approved for a multi-vendor contract vehicle to provide scheduling, call center and test collection relating to COVID-19 testing for state agencies, local governments and educational institutions.
“In Florida and Utah, TourHealth will make COVID-19 testing convenient, quick and safe for communities, and that’s our goal,” said J. Michael McNamara, Impact Health CEO.
Under the TourHealth partnership, NIC will provide its Gov2Go technology solution, a mobile platform and personal government assistant, for citizen engagement, assessment and scheduling purposes. Impact Health will supply credentialled clinical professionals to staff the testing units and provide testing results quickly and securely to individuals and government, integrating results with government contact tracing programs. Next Marketing will be responsible for onsite logistics, including supplying state-of-the-art mobile testing units, site design, signage and operational support, as applicable.
“TourHealth is the perfect example of three market leading companies coming together to develop and deploy a critical solution to an unimaginable crisis,” said Henry Rischitelli, Next Marketing President and CEO. “We look forward to launching TourHealth in Florida, Utah and other states that need rapid and secure testing services.”
